»OW»AT, jtma 11, BLTH1ETILLS (ARK.) COURIER HEWS OUT OUR WAY By J. R. Williams Our Boarding House with Maj. Hoople The word "artillery" was first used for all engines used to discharge missiles, but In more recent times it has been used only for firearms of long range capable o( discharging a bursting projectile. The arterlw are always empty after death of an organism and «rly anatomists believed they were normally filled with air.

Why won't you send a message?** Harding was white with rage. "I've made allowances for you in the past You'll keep a civil tongue in your head!** "Or you'll what?" Fred sneered. "I'll tell you one thing. You either get that radio fixed in a hurry or J'lt start burning bonfires some fishernian'll see!" "You'll light no fires on this fa- landr "Please," Mollie Stark whimpered. "Mollie's frightened. You two meets frighten Mollie." "Oh, shut up," Sillwell said. He ducked quickly when Harding swung at him with an openhanded slap. "Harding, you'd bet- ler hear what I've got to say before you start slapping me around.** Harding hesitated. He looked at Fred. "Go Mollie, then back a< ahead and talk." "What I have to say i* private. Mabel Jones left her place by Hie kitchen door. M I promised to help Miss McGuir* transplanl some iprouts," she announced "Who wanu to come?" Bea could think of no way to overhear the talk between the two men. "I'll go with jou," she decided. id fearfully, "I've jot some checking to do." Mollie Stark looked at Sillwell. "Moilie wants everyone to be happy today." Fred laughed »t her. Henry Harding taid, "He doesn't understand. Please leave us DOW, my dear. Remember there » a long future ahead of us." Mollie walked with George Bascombe toward tbe sleeping hut. From tbe expression on her face, Bern CocgTove knew the jrirl was not happy about that reminder of the future. • • • AJABEL JONES packed dirt around a letting with an earth-itamed palm. Bea and Nona McGuirt nt at their ease in tbe oppressive air and walched the woman'! deft, gentle handling of the plants. -I never got to really know much about plants till after 1 was married to WilJiam. He was my Horse and Dog husband. He had a little farm and a home and 1 had them through him." "What happened to William?" Nona asked. "Oh. he bad a fool horse throw him and step on his head," Mabel said. "So there 1 was with a farm and a mortgage and hi. name. [ worked hard and stuck it out for two years. Then'l couldn't stand it any more." "Got tired being without man?" Nona suggested. Mabel Jones began working again. That would occur to you,' she said mildly. "But it wasn' that either. It was William's last name. Mootcrief. Meet Mabe Montcrief, I'd be introduced They'd repeat the name, then look at me. Sometimes they'd laugh right out and sometimes they'c just get red trying not to laugh. Bea Cosgrove smiled, stood up and brushed dirt from her orang< dress. "I hate to leave good company, but 1 suppose I'd better ge the sheep out to pasture." -Wait a bit," Mabel Jones said 4% HOME LOANS El her! S.

That was ill right. Mm. lones goes with the waj I look Inc. And Mark was quite a man, oo. My Books and Wheels bus- land, I called him. He taught me a lot. How to talk as good as 1 do. •le gave me things to r«ad. And he loved engines and cars. Felt oward them like William did toward his dogs and horses 1 guess. But Mark could make anything grow, even though he didnt like Crowing things much. He said they ust came up to spite him, because be didn't care. Same thing worked with women, he said, so why not with plants? It worked all righL" Mabel thumped the dirt around the Ust ot the xedlings. Engines finally killed him. But my. how he would have loved to play, too, with that little funicular railway. He could have spent bours running the little cars up and down. Maybe that son ol thing appeals to bookish people. Well, there's the plants set out I'd better get back to the breakfast dishes." Mabel Jones strode off wiping her hands on her black dress. Nona McGuire got to her (eel laughing. "1 wish you could your face, Bea. Boy! Mabel may take a long lime to get around to her point, but when she does! Playing with the little cars! Some fun. What'd you do it for anyhow?" •How'd you know about it?" •Agnes told, me. Why? Doet « matter?" "No," Bea said. "I've got to get those sheep out." "So long," Nona said. "Maybe you could get Mabel to do your work too? So you'd have more time to play train." Bea did not answer. On her way to the sheepfold she passed George Bascombe. He tipped nil hat elaborately, hurried on toward the garden. He started whistling "Casey Jones." ;To Be Continue*) A MRVICC. Hue. T. U. MO.
